Merson In Positive Statement Shocker
Paul Merson is set to rock the footballing world to it's very core with his latest statement regarding Arsenal FC.
A very very brief article on the Daily Mail website has The Merse tipping our very own Robin Van Persie to finish the upcoming season by walking away with the Golden Boot.
The Magic Man said, 'It is a bold prediction but I think he has the chance to be the top scorer in the division.'
Far be it from me to pick holes in Merse's statement, but i think it's not that much of a bold prediction.
Last season, before his injury, RVP was showing the sort of goalscoring prowess to suggest that this was a very real prospect of happening in the season now gone.
Only an unfortunate injury picked up whilst tucking away the winner against ManUre denied RVP the chance to fill his boots to the tune of 20+ goals last season. So barring another lengthy layoff this time out, Rockin' Robin has definitely got the talent to end the season as the Prem's leading marksman.
And, now seen as the Gunners' main man up front, he's certainly started off pre-season in the right style, looking rather sharp and netting already.
Robin, we'll be looking forward to seeing your many goals this season.
